All the big and popular ways that people make money online explained
April 2022 Revision notes
Hi everybody. I wanted to let you know what is still valid and what is not in the ever-changing world of online marketing. For example “side hustle” is now more understandable as “part-time job”. Sorry, I couldn’t help chirping about how things change and yet always stay the same.
Do you remember Skype? Do you still use Skype for all your daily video meetings? I doubt it because Covid lockdown created a new company called Zoom and it went viral and now the whole world uses that one and not Skype.
Now I am not here to complain about change. I love change. Well, except where it means I have to keep on editing a few hundred pages online that grow old in less than a year LOL.
The latest 2022 things that might be new – or have new words.
Pretty much everything I teach you in the course below is still very valid. BUT, what has changed is a few Google algorithm updates that are affecting things I might have mentioned in the course.
1 – Google is not indexing your new pages and post anymore. This is especially true for new websites and other new online properties. It’s OK, but it just means that you have to work even harder to get Google to rank your site.
2 – Thousands upon thousands of new websites are getting launched every day. I like that, but it does make your life (and mine) a little harder when it comes to making money online. I highly suggest that you niche down in what your target marketing is doing even more. If you want rankings in the search engines. Make your website so focused on a tiny section of your chosen niche that Google will have no doubt about what your website is all about. You will get rankings once that kicks in.
3 – Video marketing and social media marketing are both working really well. Do that. I am busy creating a full course on how you can do social media marketing for your business and do that at a very low cost. Cheap leads are really cool!
If you think you might like to know when I have this course complete you can do two things.
Email me and I will put you on a list and let you know when it is done. Or, you could just visit my Agency website occasionally to see if I let people know the course exists there – https://digitalgarden.ca/
And, YES, I do offer social media marketing as my core service from that agency. The course will be for all the inquiries I keep on getting from people that really need social media marketing done the right way, but cannot afford the monthly fees my service offers. So I get to make some money from selling my methods in a course. Everybody wins.
2022 update done – if you need more email me!
This is NOT an actual training page. THIS IS NICHE RESEARCH.
What I have done for you on this page is to go over, in a series of videos, all the popular ways that you can make money online.
I feel very strongly that you need to know and have a basic understanding of the online business types for you to make an informed decision on which way you want to go when you start any sort of online business.
WATCH ALL THESE VIDEOS – It is only when you know that you LOVE CPA marketing, OR love Kindle writing – or whatever (once you get a basic understanding of what it all entails) can you then get going on your online business system/type/style/idea/method.
An extra hour or two “wasted” here in the beginning of your online journey will more than likely save you a ton of time down the line when you realize that you hate XYZ and decide to stop and try another online marketing method.
I made 21 videos for you all as a general overview of the popular ways that you can try to make money online.
I tried very hard to keep them all under 10 minutes – and when you get to know me better you will see how hard that was for me.
The videos are listed below and I added the mind-map image that I used for the videos for you so you could look at the image and skip down to the videos that might be of more interest to you.
These videos are not training – but just an overall niche research training overview.
Therefore they are open for the public to see and you will need to be a member to then go inside to see the training videos for each of the methods that I talk about here in these videos.
EDIT HERE – 2021
These videos were originally published on my Fibromyalgia site, where I help people with any form of chronic pain issues.
The really good news is that the videos will obviously still be applicable to everybody.

Big 2020 Update
It is 2020 now and very big things are happening (as always) online at the moment.
You are watching training videos on my site that already has over 400 videos.
Recently I started the “short-cut” courses because all the core courses are complete.
What am I telling you here?
Three of the BIG online places are all favoring fresh content and constant activity.
Pinterest – Etsy – Google.
It has been a very long time since you could “just add content” and actually get rankings on the search engines.
Now you can
If you combine three of my latest short-cut courses and then do what I list below there is a very big chance that you can be making a full time living in 1 third of the time (as per what I have been saying in all the older videos)
Those three courses are…
Short cut POD
Short cut Pinterest
Short cut Blogging
(you do not need to do POD and could just do affiliate marketing instead)
Create a core website – IE niche and keyword specific.
Add the 15 or 20 core silo pages
Then do this…
Blog posts 2x a day
Share each one of those posts on Pinterest with 10 variation pins per post.
Share all of that on all your other social media places.
Obviously I cannot guarantee this, but if you are sceptical, you can follow along as I try to do what I say here.
(I am already stuttering along at half speed because I have other businesses and do these courses etc)
But I am still sure that it will work 100%
